Red alert

For a fabulous ski experience, take either Verdons Sud or Verdons Nord chairlifts up to 2500 metres where you have a great view of Mont Blanc. This is the starting point of the Mont de La Guerre run. Set off on a descent of over 1300 metres without a ski lift in sight. There are no snow canons here, so the red run is open according to the snow conditions. You start with views of Mont Blanc and the Vanoise glaciers as you follow the ridge, then the run goes down through the fir trees. Less experienced skiers can take the path that winds down the mountain to Champagny en Vanoise at 1250 m.

Eat and ski !

The hospitality of the Champagnolais is also evident on the slopes. Several high altitude restaurants are run by the villagers, where local specialities and good humour are the order of the day.
Enjoy Lionel and Sabrina's homemade desserts and traditional dishes on the terrace at La Rossa, where authenticity and conviviality are the watchwords. Behind their bar, at Les Borseliers, Céline and Nicolas hand out well-stocked cups and celebrate fresh, local produce. At Le Roc des Blanchets, Arnaud cooks traditional Savoyard dishes with a breathtaking view.
And between 2 cross-country ski runs, you can push open the door of the Refuge du Bois in Champagny le Haut. In a setting worthy of a flea market, after a Savoyard crust, the challenge is to get through the enormous gourmet coffee.
